About The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers
The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers was the vision of a number of the Fellows. The idea was to further establish this profession in all its aspects as one uniquely important to the world of labor and employment law, individual rights, collective bargaining and dispute resolution. The College was established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Section of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association. It operates as a free-standing organization, recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field.
